And as a chemist I used sintered glass filtering funnels all the time.
Our chromatography columns also had a disk of sintered glass.
> Sintered powder casting is a great way to get parts that are very, very
> uniform in their composition, cross sectionally speaking. Extruded, forged

> of deforming the metal and/or turbulence when the material "flows".
> Also, sintered material can be more elastic and resilient than monolithic
> parts, and can in some cases be lighter. Consider what mixtures of different
> metals powders with similar melting points but different densities could
> result in.
